The Water and Ports, Historic Cities and Landscapes Professional Certificate in collaboration with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) - DelftX comprises two courses: (Re)Imagining Port Cities and Water Works. 

The program examines the many factors that will result in the sustainable development of port cities. It lays the foundations for shaping the present and designing the future of historic cities in socially and environmentally acceptable ways. 

Essentials are an understanding of architectural and urban form and function; respect for history and heritage and connecting with institutional and cultural aspects of the communities with whom decision-making about spatial development must be shared.

The courses focus on themes that are key challenges as identified in the UN SDGs dealing with Water and Cities. The first course applies these to port city regions and the second course to water systems in historic cities and landscapes.

The courses speak to the needs and interests of port and city professionals, water managers, as well as heritage professionals and students of the built environment. Participants in this program will gain advanced insights into the spatial, social and cultural dimensions of water, ports and historic cities internationally.
